Deborah Locke had always wanted to be a police officer, and the day she graduated from the NSW Police Academy was one of the happiest of her life. But when she started questioning some of the corrupt practices she saw around her, she discovered the dark side of policing, including the consequences of Rule No 1: never dob your mates in.
WATCHING THE DETECTIVES is about the ugly face of Aussie mateship, and the meaning of loyalty - to family, to friends, to oneself. Above all it is the story of a gutsy young woman who couldn't help being true to what she believed in, whatever the cost.
